Tulips, Glorious Tulips!

Hello! I recently traveled to Tennessee and North Carolina and have wonderful photos to share with you of art and nature – two of my loves!

Our first stop, Cheekwood Botanical Gardens and Art Museum in Nashville TN. When we lived there, I would go to Cheekwood about once a month (except when it was freezing!) to take in nature and art to refresh and inspire my soul. I would wander the grounds and walk the paths for hours… usually with a friend, but sometimes alone.

Being from the deep, deep South where we have two seasons… hot and hotter… I never understood the seasons ’til I lived in TN where they truly have 4 seasons! And Cheekwood was my favorite place to experience each season.

On this visit it’s Spring, the most colorful of all the seasons!!! And the tulips were in full bloom. It was amazing! Like God had spilled his warm watercolor palette all over the grounds and tulips popped up!

  1. I have never seen anything more beautiful. Then, of course, I’ve lived in the deep, deep South all my life. Your pictures are gorgeous.
